Using Evidence and Knowledge Self-Assessment Tool

People sat around a tableA simple framework for health organisations to assess opportunities to make better use of knowledge as an asset.

Often referred to as “The Board Tool”  this framework enables a dialogue between a representative of a library and knowledge service and senior executives in a health organisation.

It shows how the organisation is currently using external evidence and organisational knowledge and produces an action plan to help the organisation develop best practice with targeted support.

The tool can also be used to help inform evidence and knowledge strategy and to support individuals and departments in the assessment of their use of evidence and knowledge.
